Fashion Fab

I've been busy working away on some projects this week. Tune back in on Friday to see the results of what I creating for the scrap-room's first Mod Squad/Design Team Crop. Be sure to head on over to the message board and play along with all the challenges going on, it's bound to be a great time to get your creative juices flowing! It's going on all weekend long and my project, a Halloween mini album, is slotted for Friday night at 11pm central time.

I still have a pile of layouts I worked on a few weeks ago just laying on the floor in my scrap studio that still needs photos added. My printer at home is failing me...the quality is not the same so I had to do a large upload to Sam's club yesterday.

And speaking of photos, I got the opportunity to tag along on a professional photoshoot with Teresa Reed last weekend. She was taking pictures of 3 little kids and initially they were not in the mood to get their pictures taken at all! and I can sooooo relate. It was fun to watch her work her magic, she was so generous with her time in helping me learn how she meters for light. I brought along my camera and she showed me what settings she used, we had the same lens but my photos did not turn out anywhere near as good. I have no intentions of becoming a full time photographer, it's a whole lot tougher than it looks. But I would love to learn all the tricks of the trade to improve my own photos.

We have our own family photos scheduled for this Saturday with Jacque Inc. They were running a groupon special so I couldn't pass up on the $20 deal, no sitting fee and 3-4x6 prints. We're going downtown and I'm very excited about it. I've been debating on what to dress the kids in for quite some time. Isn't it everytime you're looking for a specific outfit, you can never find it but then when you're not in the shopping mode you see all these cute things at the store?

GAP had a 45% sale a week ago so I purchased a few things for the kids. I loved their Bleecker collection and got the boys some basic black/grey shirts. Micah wanted this one when I showed him the site but I wasn't so keen in him wearing a skull sweater for our family photo.

And I got this dress for myself...thinking it'll be great for xmas, and at 45% off...even better!

And speaking of fashion, I love the outfits Lisa is wearing, the 4th photo looks just my style. I love the Anthropologie boots in the 2nd one, but I can't spend that much for a pair.

And here Kelley does a comparison on clothing, love her Skimp or Splurge choices. Really like this shirt dress from Forever 21 paired with those shoes and accessories. I just don't have the sexy legs to pull it off though.

Thanks for stopping by!
